A familiar sight looks back at us here. Nothing looks changed about the PRIME Titanium platform.

We’ve already been into the line filter board on the 650W, so I’ll leave the shielding on it this time. Seasonic has no skimping on parts there. You can also see that the thermal pad for the 12V output devices is a tad better lined up with the hole in the insulator in this unit.

I see no soldering related issues here. The first unit may or may not be different… I didn’t bother taking it apart. If I took that one apart, I’d want to look for the reason it failed and I just do not have the extra time these days.

Six output devices total are used for the 12V. Here they are.

As I said, Seasonic does not skimp on the line filter here. I see two coils, four Y caps, and one X cap plus a TVS diode. Even without the added components on the line filter board (two X caps and two Y caps), that is almost complete.

The PFC components. One diode, two 60C7099 parts.

The heatsink mid image contains the four main switchers, 5R140Ps.

Hitachi brings us our main filter capacitors. I have to admit, I love seeing these big blue capacitors in power supplies… it almost always means the company gives a damn about putting the good stuff everywhere else, too.

A CM6901 provides PWM control, of course.

The minor rail VRM is found in the usual PRIME spot, in front of a flawlessly soldered modular board.

This slightly out of focus shot is supposed to tell you that Rubycon, Nichicon, and Chemi-Con capacitors can all be found inside this unit. No bad parts, only good ones.

There’s your Weltrend protection IC, a WT7527V.

Finally, the modular outputs and all their polymer capacitors.

Let’s go score this thing in a hurry so we can stop Brenda’s mom from filing a police report against us for that hacky sack incident. The dog? We can just let him sleep off all that turkey we threw at him.
